Main Presentation:

Xamarin: A Recap from Build and Evolve 2016

James Alt (Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana)

A lot has changed with Xamarin in the last few months, including being acquired by Microsoft. In this presentation we will go over what that acquisition means for you. We will also cover a lot of the changes covered at Evolve, like the updates to Xamarin Forms and Workbooks. We will also go over Xamarin & Microsoft’s “Complete Mobile Solution”, going from development to deployment and everything in between to deliver quality mobile applications.

James Alt is the lead mobile developer at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana that has been developing Xamarin applications for the last three years. Prior to that he was working on native mobile apps for a startup in the Tech Park. He is also the owner of a small mobile consulting company, building apps for local beer distributors (because it is a product he can get behind). He is a happy husband and proud father, and when not working he can be found at the house trying to remember how to play video games or working on a new home brew.
